Currency: Namibian Dollar
Best way of getting around: Independent driving or driving with a tour guide.
Highlight: those stunning red dunes in the world’s oldest desert
Travel tip: Pack for both hot and cold weather in the desert and plan your trip in advance. It’s not that easy to get into the Namib desert spontaneously.
Dress Code: Casual but remember that deserts have extreme temperatures. Hot and cold!
Unusual highlight: Solitaire – a pit stop in the desert
Tucked down in the southern part of Africa, Namibia is famed for its red rust sand, giant dunes, skeleton coast and the world’s oldest desert. Swakopmund is billed as an adrenaline capital but through my eyes it was unimaginably dreary. Colourful street art was its saving grace.
